Knitting Pattern November Pumpkin Sweater
The November Pumpkin Sweater is a simple and fun raglan sweater. I was inspired by the fields of forgotten pumpkins trying to fight the November fog and fill the dreary winter days with color and joy.
Stick to my color scheme or let your creativity sparkle and let the pumpkins dance as you like!

The Sweater is worked top-down with a raglan shaping. To form a simple collar shape, the first part is knitted straight, then the work is closed in the round to finish the raglan increases. The raglan sts are worked in a simple twisted sts pattern and this pattern runs as fake seams along the sides of the body and at the underarms to the borders. After separating the body and sleeve sts, the sleeve sts are placed on waste yarn. After the body is finished the sleeves are knitted and finished in a similar way as the body.
The sweater is worn with 3-5cm / 1.2-2” positive ease.
